Step 4 continued
The first thing you probably notice is that the piece has been flipped 180 degrees. Works better visually at this stage guiding the eye boldly from upper right to lower left but still with visual anchors in the opposite direction. Since we normally read from upper left to lower right, this is a bit edgy which gives the piece energy and warns of the unexpected. The second thing you see is that I have fallen in love with white. This is surprising as black is usually my go-to default - so much for those bold black marks I thought were going to be so prominent! The colors are emerging but need a lot of work to tie together at this point.
